Got to try Quiet Man whiskey yesterday. I really liked it. Not the most flavorful, but very smooth. Anyone else had it?

Oh, also got to try Teeling a couple weeks ago. I hated it. Tasted like rubbing alcohol.

Stranahan's is a favorite as well. I wouldn't move back to CO but they do have some great spirits!

Not a large enough sample size. Have you ever put gin in fresh tomato soup and then dipped grilled cheese sandwiches in it.? So so decadent for what it is.

I am in Butte (pronounce beaut), MT drinking Neversweat...a whiskey distilled here. It's very good.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

We have several streets in our territory that involve the name Butte. It's a time honored tradition to tell new medic's and dispatchers it's pronounced booty or butt to embarrass them.

It's a real knee slapper.




Now, back to whiskey.

That sounds a lot like a trick that was played on unsuspecting rookies in our local Sheriff's department. There was a man by the name of Harry Beaver (his real name) and his vehicle was always "suspicious" so the rookie would run the plate which returned to a Mr. Harry Beaver. Hearing that over the radio was quite the knee slapper too.

I had posted my question about cheap whiskey on it's own thread so as not to derail this one... upon further review, I shouldn't have worried. :lol:

So, Hugodrax has brought to my attention that several whiskeys have a standard bottling and then a seperate "bottled in bond" bottling. I like to think of myself of somewhat of a whiskey snob, but I have no idea what this means. Help?


Also, my latest purchase was Evan Williams white label (bottled in bond). Not the smoothest bourbon I have ever had, but it is a drinkable bourbon to be sure. Certainly is nice with a little Pirate Kake by a crackling fireplace.

Sorry, bottled in bond is a designation indicating it's been distilled in one season from one distillery, aged at least four years in bond in a federal warehouse, and bottled at 100 proof. It's almost always better than the ordinary kentucky proof bottlings.

I wonder if the researchers at Innsbruck differentiated between London and Dutch Gins. Dutch Gin is quite a bit sweeter.

At Ft. Huachuca we mixed our G&Ts with Oso Negro, a Dutch style sweet Gin distilled in Mexico.
I infiltrated into Mexico on several missions to bring back Oso Negro for in-depth study.

I still have a bottle.

I got to enjoy a thorough sampling of Belle Meade Bourbon this weekend. It was smooth and rich with a quick finish that wasn't too sweet like some bourbons hit me. It was a great evening, so I need to give it a little time to make sure I'm separating the sentiment of the moment from the whiskey, but there's an excellent chance this will become my favorite Bourbon yet.
